3i Group Offices

Originate designed the new London headquarters office of the 3i Group. 3i is an investment company specialising in private equity and infrastructure. They invest in mid-market companies headquartered in northern Europe and North America.

We designed the reception with a special silver travertine that we sourced personally in Italy. We wanted it to represent something of rare quality, but that had solidity. We made a play of ‘three’ with three stands for artwork at the desk and three light boxes that defined the waiting area. We refurbished all the meeting rooms and created a new staff cafe. All the lighting was upgraded and plants and greenwalls added to the open plan areas.
